  1. Fair enough, if we had to take the bad with the good, then I would pick someone besides CP. My point is just simply that I couldn't go *pure* talent (which would clearly be Suh for me), because I don't truly believe this team has thought it *should* win the big games in a long time. And I'm desperate for a talented leader to step up and smack his teammates upside the head to remind them that we are friggin Nebraska -- we should win every single game from now until eternity (that mentality). So maybe Trev would be a good replacement for CP. Maybe his brother Jason. Maybe
  2. I tend to think this team has been, and continues to be, a head case and its own worst enemy for the last 10 years or so, one who doesn't truly think it can win a big game. It's painful to watch these games. Even though I'd rather have Suh than anyone in my lifetime for a pure game changer, I'd probably go with Tommie Frazier and Christian Peter (I know, in my perfect world, we'll disregard "off the field" behavior). Tommie's confidence and big game performance changed the course of this program in the 90s. It seemed infectious. And I could have picked from a few (inclu
  3. So true. ASU could certainly put up points that year. But given how incredibly bad our offense played that game, and given that (IIRC) ASU scored a TD on their first drive, it was a Herculean effort by our D the rest of the way.
  4. I tend to agree with this. Farley was one of the most electrifying players I've ever seen. It's hard to put into words how big of a hit that was to our team at that time. I thought McBride was very wise to put more speed in his absence, by bringing down Minter to play in his absence -- worked well against the Buffs. But Farley's extra strength against the run, along with the damn flu, really cost us against UT. .... Who knew it would be the beginning of a long-running nightmare against that team?
  5. They had a pretty active defense up front that year, from what I remember, so it's not like we were going to repeat what happened the year before. Looking at their wikipedia page for their 1996 team, they had 3 LBs and a DT taken in following draft, so that's even more stout than I would have remembered. And being stout and deep up front was really your only prayer for matching up against Nebraska in the 90s. But beyond clearly having some good talent on their squad, they were another year older and just had great team chemistry, which goes a long way towards an unforeseen improvem
  6. Wow! Couldn’t happen to a better player! What an example he set this year!
  7. Seriously. Let’s try a little stability for a change. We need another good offseason of S&C. Future is bright!
  8. Gonna need some more prayers Defense is a bit lost today.
  9. You're technically correct. Like you said, I'm sure the point was essentially, "he played when we were a power team," but yeah..... First year on practice squad (due to transfer) was our last year in Big 8 (1995), then started 2 years in Big 12.
  10. Not sure it would help (of course he SHOULD, but not certain what it will accomplish). This season is about to get really ugly. They’ve just been thoroughly embarrassed. Again. They never seem to recover from these types of losses. No coaching staff I’d feather have, but unfortunately this is going to be a long-term project. Their strength and athleticism was at least 3 weight room years beyond us.
  11. Wow. Just....... wow. This is a grown-ass man, right?
  12. Funny, but true. The Spring Game truly was the best that team would ever look. I was very excited about the possibilities before the regular season train wreck.
  13. I hate to be that guy, but... Alex Smith Tim Tebow Braxton Miller J.T. Barrett Even coached up Cardale Jones to play, and win, the biggest games of the season. I do agree I’d rather play for Frost than Harbaugh, as a QB prospect. But as as of right now, the Big Ten has a QB Whisperer, and he wasn’t listed as a choice in that poll.
